Ridley Jones is being careful about where she steps, and trying to get on with her life, when a seemingly mundane act - picking up a few envelopes of prints at a photo lab - puts her at the nexus of a global network of crime. The shadowy figure of a man appears in almost every picture she's taken in the last year, lurking just far enough away to make identification impossible.

Now the FBI is at her door, some serious bad guys are following her every move, and the family she once loved and relied on is more distant than ever. The only thing Ridley knows for sure is that she has to get to the truth about herself and her past if she's ever going to find her way home.

Charged with relentless intensity and kinetic action, playing out with unnerving suspense on the streets of New York and London, and seen through the terrified but determined eyes of a young woman whose body and heart are pushed to the point of shattering, Sliver of Truth is another triumph from the New York Times best-selling author of Beautiful Lies.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna Lanheady | 2/19/2014

    " I was disappointed in Part 1 of this sequel. The transition from the first book felt rough and rehashed so much, I lost interest in the story. Thankfully, Parts 2 and 3 moved forward and established suspense that kept up through the end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 2/15/2014

    " I picked this up on audio and this is book 2 in the series. I liked the story, but it would have been better to read book #1 first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 2/6/2014

    " Not my typical read but loved this book! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 2/6/2014

    " A sequel to Beautiful Lies, which was good. The sequel is bad in so many ways. Don't bother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chrissy | 2/2/2014

    " It was good to see Ridley Jones again. I enjoyed her in the first book, Beautiful Lies, even though I found it rather predictable, as a thriller. This book was more intense, with the stakes being higher, as it seemed that even more people were trying to kill her now, simply because she knew too much. I have to say that this one had more intrigue in it for me than the last one, and there were many more surprises. I hope Lisa Unger revisits Ridley Jones again soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandie | 1/28/2014

    " I enjoyed this just as much as Beautiful Lies. Good book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 1/25/2014

    " This was a much better book than the 1st book. The story was much easier to digest. The timeline 'error' I thought I had discovered in the first novel turned out to be a clue to uncover a mystery in the second novel...cool stuff! I was able to stomach the main character much easier than the first book...but I truly hope there are no more of her, because I would navigate to reading it and I still do not like Ridley. If you read the first book, Beautiful Lies, you must read this one too, it is worth the 8 hours, for me it at least. It left me feeling that it is finished; or is it...? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey | 1/25/2014

    " Can't put it down... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Irene | 1/22/2014

    " it is a story of another female protagonist that risks her life to solve a mystery. I do like Unger's work and do not find it full of horrible gore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 1/15/2014

    " i read this b/c i enjoyed her previous book beautiful lies. this was good too but i liked beautiful lies more "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 1/11/2014

    " She lost me when she picked up the gun. I mean...COME ON!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 1/1/2014

    " Continuation of Beautiful Lies "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Mclaughlin | 12/16/2013

    " A continuation of Beatiful Lies - exciting and and kept me interested throughout! Unger is now someone I want to continue to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/20/2013

    " A solid follow up to Beautiful Lies. As the story moves along, the the mystery burrows deeper and the action intensifies. The cutting back and forth between memory and sequences within the current time line add depth of consequence and perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charley | 10/3/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 9/23/2013

    " This book took a while to grow on me. At the beginning I felt that the author was repeating too much of the text from the previous book instead of just reminding you of what happened previously. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 7/4/2012

    " Like the first book, I couldn't put this down. I had to know what happened and it kept getting more complicated. I would recommend this to anyone that likes mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne Glorioso | 3/10/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 3/22/2011

    " I am glad that I had read Beautiful Lies first. There were many things in this book that referred to the plot in the first book. Ridley Jones continues to be involved in a big mess. She still isn't sure who she can trust. It was a fast paced story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 3/13/2011

    " Bummer to realize this was a sequel when I was at the beach. I might have liked it better if I had read the first one, but maybe not. I might have been annoyed as there was a lot of repetition and review of the first one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 2/6/2011

    " surprising part two of Ridley,s adventures "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shayla | 12/26/2010

    " Man, the stuff that happens to this chick is OUT THERE, but isn't that what you'd expect in a thriller/suspense/mystery? Still gotta love the fast-paced action and the character found in Ridley Jones. Lisa Unger is a good story-teller, she just is. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/23/2010

    " didn't care for her style of writing. didn't think she built up the relationship between herself and her bio father enough to make it plausable. "
